  • Reflection Question
    At Home Find Local Recycling Drop-Off Centers
    Our ability to recycle certain things ebbs and flows based upon many factors. Luckily there are places that accept uncommon things to recycle or dispose of in a less harmful way. What did you find when looking for places to recycle items that can't be recycled in your curbside bin?

    In Bloomington there is a recycle place that takes paint and other household items. However I also learned bridging and habitat for humanity in normal circumstances accepts these type of donations and reuses rather than ending up in a landfill.
